BLOWING COLD AIR THEN NOT BLOWING COLD AIR

2002 Volvo XC70

Air Conditioning problem
2002 Volvo XC70 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

Hello
My 2002 XC Volvo will blow cold air then it will jsut stop. The air still blows, and its cool jsut not cold. Eventualy its almost like jsut having the vent on. If you turn the system off then back on in a few minutes it will sometimes work. I know there is some kind of fresh air sensor for the AC could that be bad? Help its getting Hot in Atlanta!

With the air going on and off then you may need a recharge of freon. Its just as hot here in SC.

Check the gap on the A/C compressor clutch. Gap should be between 0.3mm to 0.5mm
If the gap is too big you need to replace the compressor clutch. Labor on that will be about 5 hours plus the clutch.
